       Of ups and downs

My problem, a valley of repose,
Were flowers of serenity doze.
Were beds the mind on happiness,
That lies among the emptiness.

It is a place I do enjoy,
If it were not for my wives annoy.
For she wakes me up in constant sweep,
When I am in this pleasant deep.

I flounder in the ups and downs
The busy of her dos and rounds.
I try my best, the best I can,
For I'm no saint, only a man.

I really would she ring a bell,
Then shake me wake, it feels like hell
I do get up a little gruff
And speak to her a little rough.

But life is full of ups and downs,
Kings and Queens and crowns and clowns.

Now Sy- don't be so cranky hun!  I just made it clear when me and my ex were together, that if he tried to wake me up- I'd start biting and clawing!   see?  no need for rough words huh?

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

Sy,
So now we see the other side
Would this be Jeckell or is it Hyde?
Now let me give you some advice
Treat her sweet, and treat her nice
You have some little chores to do
She'll cook a dinner just for you
Love ya,
Liz

Devina,
Well I'm only a mild grump, Thanks for the comment.
Elizabeth,
Well I do like to cat nap and for some reason
it seems to bother her, I don't wake her when she naps. Well maybe I should?
Love Sy
Denise,
Hey even saints nap once in a while. *L*
Sunshine,
Not really.
